About this mod

Prepare your brain for the Sekiro Poorly Translated Edition mod, which replaces all text and voice files from Sekiro with their "poorly" translated analogues.

Permissions and credits
{ Description } 

This mod replaces all lines of text with those which have been run through a randomly generated sequence of translations selected from a large number of different languages. This mod also replaces all lines of dialogue with text-to-speech renditions of the corresponding text.

{ Pre-installation Notes }

This mod replaces the English voice files, so ensure you have selected English as the spoken language.

The mod is presented in the format of archives named "SSDT_PTE (Si).zip" (where i is a positive integer) and described by parameters [x,y1,y2,z] where:

  • x is the number of languages from which the translations were selected.
  • y1 and y2 are the minimum and maximum number of translations to which each input was subjected, respectively.
  • z assumes the value of 1 or 0 if repeated selection of any language in the sequence of translations is allowed or disallowed, respectively.

For example, [64,15,15,1] means each input was subjected to a sequence of exactly 15 translations, whose languages were selected from a total of 64 with repetition allowed (meaning any language could appear more than once in the sequence of translations).

Each archive is also associated with an identifier "(Vj)" (where j is a positive integer) of the mapping which corresponds text-to-speech voices to NPCs. Tables of NPCs and their corresponding voices as defined by the mappings (Vj) are given in Miscellaneous files as an archive named "SSDT_PTE (V).zip" containing text files "SSDT_PTE (Vj).txt" for each j.

{ Installation }

  1. If not done already, install Sekiro Mod Engine

{ Notes }

  • The introductory cutscene is unchanged with respect to sound.
  • If lines of text are longer than their original placeholders, they are sometimes cut short, and the same goes for cutscene voice lines.
  • The mod is presented in such a way that enables the creation and uploading of new translation seeds with different parameters and voice mappings.
